From the very first residents of Florida to the tourists of today, Wakulla Springs has been fascinating visitors for more than 12,000 years.

This 6,000-acre state park and wildlife sanctuary is home to one of the largest springs in the world, with an average of 250 million gallons of water flowing daily into its 9 mile long river. An intricate cave system, first discovered in the 1950s and thoroughly explored in 1987, exists almost a half-mile below the surface. Within the 12 miles of caves, divers have found a number of fossilized mastodon bones and a species of eyeless albino cave crustaceans.

Archaeologists have found stone blades and Clovis spear points that date back thousands of years, when the gigantic Wakulla Springs was nothing more than a small sinkhole. It is believed that more than 50,000 Apalachee Indians lived in this area before the arrival of the Spanish.

In 1528, Panfilo de Narvaez became the first Spaniard to explore the Wakulla Springs area. He was in search of gold and riches, but his ill-fated expedition encountered fierce resistance from the Apalachee and resulted in starvation and death. In 1656, the Spanish set up a mission system to try to Christianize the Indians and bring them under Spanish control. The capital of this mission system, Mission San Luis de Apalachee, was set up in this area.

In the 1850s, the legend of this magical place where water gushed forth from the ground attracted the attention of archaeologists like George S. King, a Rhode Island professor, who found a mastodon jawbone in just 40 feet of water. For the next century, naturalists and early “ecotourists” explored Wakulla to enjoy its wealth of wildlife.

The park became even more well-known in 1941 when the original Tarzan movie was filmed there. In 1953, the spring was used for scenes in The Creature From The Black Lagoon. Wakulla Springs was designated a National Natural Landmark in 1966, and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1993.
